The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of global carbon fiber market. According to the report the global carbon fiber market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% over the forecast period of 2018-2024.
The carbon fiber is the fiber made from the carbon crystals
by connecting them in the long axis. The carbon fiber is available in a diverse
form and can be manipulated as per the application requirement. When the carbon
fiber combined with resin they form a composite that has high tensile strength
but is very light in weight. The carbon fiber offers many advantages over the
glass fiber and plastic fiber as the high strength, rigidity, corrosion
resistance, electrical conductivity and so on.
Versatile properties offered by carbon fiber based
components they are used in various industries such as aerospace and defense,
automotive, construction and infrastructure, wind energy, sporting goods and so
on. The carbon fiber reinforced composite materials are used to make the
aircraft, spacecraft part, and automotive parts as they need high strength and
low weight. The carbon fiber fulfills the requirements as they offer high
strength with a relatively low weight with high corrosion resistance.
The rapidly growing use of carbon fiber in the aerospace and
spacecraft for the manufacturing of various parts is the primary factor driving
the growth of the carbon fiber market. In addition, increasing awareness about
the excellent mechanical and physical properties of Carbone fiber rises it is
used in various industries likely to boost the growth of Carbone fiber market.
However, the high cost of carbon fiber is hampering the growth of Carbone fiber
market. Moreover, growing demand for lightweight but strong material from the
automotive and aerospace industries are projected to create more opportunities
in upcoming years.
Among the region, North America dominates the market of
carbon fiber market. The presence of the largest aircrafts makers in this region
results in increased demand for Carbone fiber in this region. Many automotive
manufacturers are focusing on the production of lightweight cars that is likely
to boost the growth of the carbon fiber market in this region.
